  This story only make any sense If it happened shorty after Kraven's Last Hunt. And on one panel we can even clearly see Peter & MJ are living in Bedford Towers. So it's possible for Peter to suffer from some kind of PTSD...
Unfortunatelly trying to sell that comic Marvel editors mentioned it in another comic from the same year as something that just happened, so it has to be placed here and cannot have"falshback" banner added. Shame really... Cause it makes this story even weirder than it already is...

  There’s not much of a continuity problem if you take sliding timescale into consideration and remember that it can take years for people to start experiencing strong PTSD symptoms like flashbacks and years more to recover. Spider-Man survives being buried alive in WoSM #32, November 1987. He’s evicted from Bedford Towers in ASM #314, April 1989. No problem with this story taking place up to 17 issues after he was buried, given sliding timescale (where characters routinely refer to things happening “months ago” that were published 5+ years before) and PTSD length. But what about SSM #178 from July 1991, like fragsel mentions at the end? Could Peter’s reference to the events of Soul of the Hunter make sense if those events were 26 issues ago? It’s more of a stretch, but I think so. He says “After all this time I’ve finally made some peace with the past; with all that Kraven did to me.” And then an editor note says “For the story on how Spidey made his peace, see our upcoming Soul of the Hunter one-shot.” It’s a little confusing because the editor note refers to an upcoming story as explaining something from the past, but there’s nothing that suggests that “finally made some peace” was something that just happened. After all, the intense re-traumatization of Soul of the Hunter can be seen as Spidey starting a process of getting over it and making his peace, and he’s not even fully over it in SSM #178 — the same images and words are still popping up in his mind. So “finally made some peace” is a process that began in Soul of the Hunter and which Spidey thought was done “after all this time” by SSM #178, but he’s frustrated that it’s not over yet (43 issues after getting out of the grave, and at least 26 issues after confronting Kraven’s ghost).

In conclusion, it’s ok to put Flashback on this one.
